Add a verification badge that verifies the users face like bumble & tinder have. It will get rid of bots & the fake people using others profile pictures.
This is more important than anything else on Grindr and it needs to happen ASAP. Too many fake people on here, and the scary part is some of them actually want to meetup knowing they are not who they say they are. Grindr please do this ASAP
Yes, we badly need a Verification badge on this site's profiles. I myself have been clicked by anon profiles - actually using photo of someone I know - 200 miles away!
YES ! this!
Great idea, needs to happen to keep people safe. Other apps have it, so why are we deprived of it here? I pay for EXTRA but this feature should be freely available to everyone. Period.
Totally disagree with the poster below. Verification should be an OPTION, it doesn't need to bemandatory so those who want to stay discreet can...and those who want to make sure they are not being catfished and getting their pics stolen, or worse meeting someone who isn't who they say they are can stay safe.
Bad idea. It will compel people to show a pic.
Many do not want their photos up and indeed on a location specific app that would most definitely compromise personal security. The reason people hide their faces is not just closet cases but to avoid neighbours seeing or being shown them by third parties, to avoid jealous ex's, to avoid cyber stalkers etc.... Also, many of the faceless prefer to relate intellectually as a priority before showing their faces and indeed many are good-lookers who don't want to be picked up for shallow cosmetic reasons.
If you want proof of identity just ask the person to send a face-pic posed in a certain way or go meet them in the street to check each other out.
I've seen scammers pretending to be women, on a gay dating app.

Get rid of spammers and definitely the catfishes
I think this is great idea everyone should have their identification checked with a valid I’d and grinder written on paper with the person I’d and then person take photo them self on cam think be much better
Search spammers and bots. I have the best free solution. No more minors, catfish, baiters, spammers or bots. Like no more as in completely eradicated. All private too.
